This was a good read. The h is strong, intelligent and goodhearted. I liked the H but occasionally wanted to box his ears.
The h was 20 years old when they had a month long affair. While the H was gone for the day the H's ex-wife appeared and told h that they were still married, called the h foul names and told her that she always had to clean up the H's messes. The h ran. She was humiliated and ashamed and felt that the H had betrayed her. She was also pregnant. She struggled to work and keep he

3) I really had trouble following their banter...and the logic behind it. I put that down to the story b

3.5 stars. This was a decent older story. Sometimes I felt like I wasn't exactly following what was supposed to be witty or sarcastic banter. The story was also kind of emotionally flat -- not that there was no emotion to it, but more that there weren't really highs and lows and so the ending wasn't that thrilling. This has to be the easiest acceptance of a forced marriage I've read yet -- the heroine had had a month-long affair with the hero 3 years' prior, and she hardly bats an eye when out o ...more
